@Mano Watsa I wanted to let you know I am currently reading the Outward Mindset book. Great recommendation!!February 3, 2020 at 7:51 pm #175939Inactive
The Most Excellent Way to Lead by Perry Noble. It uses 1 Cor. 13 (The Love Chapter) to explain the characteristics of a great leader.
Lead for God’s Sake is mentioned above several times and I would add that it is a book every coach should read.
I currently have a stack of books I am anxiously waiting to dive into.
Adapt or Die – Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Rick Lynch
Leadershift – John Maxwell
Two Feet Forward – Heather Macy
The Ideal Team Player – Patrick Lencioni
Every Moment Matters – John O’Sullivan
I am looking forward to reading some of the books mentioned above. Thank you for the suggestions.March 22, 2020 at 3:37 pm #176078Inactive
John Maxwell’s “The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork: Embrace Them and Empower Your Team” is a good book on leadership and team building. https://www.amazon.com/dp/1400204739/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_rs4DEbHSCF0H7March 25, 2020 at 1:05 pm #176103Inactive
@Tyler Coston you are spot on my friend! Started Culture Code Book club last night and already gained so many insights and ideas from other coaches that are involved. We only made it through the first 2 chapters! Can’t wait to reconnect with those coaches next week with more content!March 30, 2020 at 7:45 pm #176115Inactive
Just finished Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. Really good insight into vulnerability and its relationship with perfectionism. Also goes into the importance of empathy, courageous conversations and how small moments build trust.March 31, 2020 at 4:13 pm #176117Inactive20 hours ago, Aaron Hedman said:

Brene Brown is good man. I listened to an audiobook of her recently.
I just started: The Smart Take From the Strong by Pete Carril. Anyone read this before?April 23, 2020 at 4:25 pm #176180Inactive

I have read a lot of books over the years. I recently finished Character Carved in Stone by Pat Williams, Senior VP of the Orlando Magic. This is probably
now my favorite book of all time. You get to see how effective leadership was executed when it was really needed. I cannot give a strong enough recommendation.June 19, 2020 at 1:46 pm #176296InactiveSeptember 25, 2020 at 5:28 pm #176424Inactive
Such great recommendations in this thread! Two more books I’d recommend …
1. What Drives Winning by Brett Ledbetter
2. Leading on Empty by Wayne Cordeiro
Two great reads!!!
